Hibernate for Windows is a program built into most PCs running Microsoft Windows. You may have used it for some time if you're familiar with the Windows Operating System. Hibernate is a handy feature that essentially allows you to power off your PC without losing anything you are currently working on or viewing. When your PC comes back on, its contents will be exactly what they were when you put the computer into hibernate mode. With it, you no longer have to go through and sync with multiple browser tabs and files. This allows you to keep track of things without sacrificing RAM and the ability to perform maintenance in your computer's RAM.

A safer "sleep mode" is called Hibernate for your computer. The "Sleep" mode is only effective if you only keep your data in your RAM, which means you'll lose any information it contains if there's a power outage in your home or office. In Hibernate for Windows, data on your hard drive is protected if there is a power outage in the event of an accident. Data on other hard drives is also completely secure. There are a number of reasons to use hibernate, and you should do this often.
